Why (poem)

Updated on August 31, 2014

The sun awakes another day

And flowers have so much to say

The whole world now seems on display

Forgotten now is yesterday

And all the reasons why


Somewhere in my memory

Lost with things I didn’t see

Is all the hope which once was me

And how this fate has come to be

Within the hands of why


Above me is a clear blue sky

It’s there my thoughts are doomed fly

If on some faith I can rely

Or perhaps here it too will die

Amid the tears of why


A soldier that they used to know

With guns ablaze put on a show

Those youthful faces in a row

Together sing this song of woe

In choruses of why


And so I feel my time is due

As darkness casts its lonely hue

My love my last thoughts were of you

Within your arms and I am through

Can someone explain why
